    Out saving pubs and enjoying it.


    A streamlined mostly local based week.

    Windsor & Eton Guardsman
    Black Sheep Twilighter
    Flowerpots Perridge Pale
    Youngs Bitter
    Colchester Jester
    Muirside Big Bertha
    Triple fff Pressed Rat And Warthog

    I enjoyed several of the Black Sheep beer but just shading it to BOTW is Colchester Jester in beautiful condition in The Alfred.

    A slow week for me with a list dominated by ELB due to a Meet The Brewer thingy at the Wanstead George.

    ELB Orchid Mild 3.6%
    ELB Pale 4.0%
    ELB Foundation Bitter 4.2%
    ELB Nightwatchman 4.5%
    Hook Norton Old Hooky 4.6%
    ELB Jamboree 4.8%
    Shepherd Neame Bishops Finger 5.0%
    Portobello APA 5.0%
    Reunion Incredible Pale 5.0%
    Brewdog Punk IPA (keg) 5.4%
    ELB Quadrant Oatmeal Stout 5.8%

    Sadly the Cowcatcher ran out but the Quadrant Stout (£2.09) was silky smooth so I had another. I've found that all the ELB beers have some merit and they don't do murky or sour beers.

    BOTW ELB Quadrant Oatmeal Stout

    Another quiet week. No Sunday afternoon wander, unfortunately.

    Ilkley - Blonde.
    Roosters - Pils-Near.
    Magic Rock - Common Grounds.*
    Ossett - Otago.
    Mill Valley - Yorkshire Rose.
    Phoenix - Monkeytown MILD.
    North Riding - Cascade.*
    Five Towns - Monster Mash.

    Easy winner was the Common Grounds, a 5.4% Coffee Porter.

    Dull week with Purity Lawless making BOTW. Cold and refreshing, until it ran out, on a warm afternoon.
